Antique late 1700's to mid 1800's Primitive Wood Wheat Flail Grain Threshing Farm Tool in excellent shape and a lovely decor piece.
With a great swivel and replaced leather piece. This long stick has an amazing patina and lovely hand carved ascetics like the nub on the end similar to the early hand carved baseball bats. Makes this a great Decoration Rustic primitive Farming piece of history from the late 1700's into the early to mid 1800's before the advent of the mechanical grain thresher.

All original except for the leather piece. No broken or repaired sections.
These types of Grain, Rye , barley hand threshers predated the mechanical thresher machines of the Horse and Buggy era.
The farmers would stack a pile of grain, wheat , rye and stand around it and beat the pile of grains knocking the grain seeds off the stems and husks and they would shovel them up into sacks or bags for using when making fresh bread, cereals and foods.
See the last picture for these threshers in use by our pioneer farmers. (I wonder how many people got whacked on the head by accident)?

Great for the home hearth, cabin or cottage. As rustic decor.
